lyrics

You said you were moving to Houston
Just to buy a little time
‘Cause there was a man who promised more than he had
He promised you it would be alright

Side by side, whiskey kiss
As we drove up from LA
Through the desert that welcomes you back to the hills
Probably you had more to say

You never forgot to always be kind
Kept up a smile in the silence
But you went and finished the rest of the wine
In the distance I cut some more wood for the fire

Awkward, but loving and strong
Did you think you held me back?
From the things that I needed to think of myself
Sitting by the fire with brandy, or something like that

Then came the snow on the hill
In the end, it kept us warm
Smelling of smoke, I moved closer to you
Because the fire gave up too soon
But not you

Never forgot to always be kind
Kept up a smile in the silence
But you went and finished the rest of the wine
In the distance I cut some more wood for the fire

We were almost to Denver
Blinded by the ice and by the time
The highway’d been closed for hours and hours
But we found some place
To sit for to drink
And you loved me, I think
At least in the phone calls we made in our sleep

For a friend who said she'd always be sick
For a friend, we both waited to cry
She said, “This is what beauty is, this is what’s right”
We danced in the night, naked most of the time

You never forgot to always be kind
Kept up a smile in the silence
The picture you took is burned in my mind
The mountains like piles of ash by the fire
